Samsung G400 full touch dual screen clamshell
The G400 is Samsung’s new dual screen clamshell that was announced at the CeBIT. The phone is quite similar to the Samsung ‘Soul’ with its high gloss metallic finish with a hairline texture. The phone also offers users three different options as far as graphical user interfaces (GUIs) is concerned: GUI skin allows users to personalize the user interface with various options like background images, fonts, and colors. Specs include an internal 2.22-inch TFT LCD display plus a 2.22-inch external full touch screen display. The external touch display lets you use the multimedia features without opening the folder, featuring vibration feedback that responds to touches. Multimedia features include FM radio, music, a built-in camera, and photo album software. All these are accessible via the full touch external display. Phone centric tasks are accessed via the internal display. You can even set wallpaper or other items on the external display. Notifications for SMS/MMS as well as alarm or schedules are also viewable directly on the external display.
Also included in the Samsung G400 is a5 megapixel camera with features like automatic face detection, image stabilization, and Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) functionality. High speed internet is accessed via a 7.2Mbps High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) browser. You can also access video telephony under HSDPA networks using a sub camera. The G400 is slated for shipment in European countries starting in June, however pricing was unavailable.
